These three itineraries are especially nice for those who have an affinity for red wines. The Bordeaux region of France, the Columbia River region in Oregon and the Douro Valley in Portugal all offer fantastic opportunities to explore culturally and historically rich areas with plenty of world class vineyards. An added bonus - somewhat "off the beaten path, these rivers tend to less crowded than the popular Rhine and Danube cruises.
The Bordeaux itineraries are available with Amawaterways, Avalon, CroisiEurope, Scenic, Uniworld and Viking. European Waterways offers barge trips through the region as well.
Un-Cruise's itinerary includes four rivers: the Columbia, Snake, Willamette, and Palouse and visits to up to 5 wineries in this award winning region. Check out their short video.
Douro River itineraries are available with Amawaterways, CroisiEurope, Emerald Waterways, Scenic, Uniworld and Viking.
